Eagle Snatches Dog While Owner Watches

I’m supposed to analyze this as a case study for my Advanced Editing lab, but I’m too busy laughing out loud like an idiot 😀 It’s way too funny.

Valdez, Alaska — A bald eagle satisfied its hunger at a Valdez gas station when it snatched up a small dog and flew away, leaving the dog’s owner screaming in horror.

The chihuahua-like dog had been let out of a motor home to run around in the station’s parking lot while the owners, an unidentified couple from Georgia, cleaned the vehicle’s windshield.

Witnesses said the pet was about 5 feet away from the RV when the eagle swooped down from a perch in a nearby tree. Before the owners could react, the eagle circled up and away, heading off toward the city’s harbor clinching the pooch tightly.

“It was the damnedest thing I ever saw,” said Dennis Fleming, a gas station attendant. “The dog gave one yelp and that was it.”

The woman owner clutched her hands to her face and cried, “Oh, my God,” while Fleming tried to console her.

Her husband, however, didn’t appear to take the dog’s departure too seriously. Fleming said as the man walked around the side of the motor home, out of sight of his wife, he began to grin and chopped his hands in the air and exclaimed, “Yeah! Yeah!”
